San Francisco Bay. A Poem in Words and Photographs

 I left my heart in San Francisco Bay 
My hope went much the same way 
And my feet were stuck in old Japan.
My love, it goes with you 
Though I'm diffused and blue 
And the waves crash on the shore. 
Take me far away from Cape Fear 
The winters are too long and dismal here 
Though my love abides with you. 
Love, like a cherry tree grows 
Love, it ebbs and flows 
Down stream just you and me. 
You say, North Country winters  
Are much too harsh 
The snow's chest deep in March 
It strips the bark right off the trees. 
Take me where the river flows 
Take me to where our love grows. 
And no one will ever Know.  
(all photographs my own) I left my heart in San Francisco Bay
My hope went much the same way
My love it goes with you
Though I’m diffused and blue
Take me to where our love grows
Love like a cherry tree grows
…Far away from Cape Fear
And the waves crash on the shore.
You say north country winters are much too harsh..
Love it ebbs and flows

        Yes to the photo… but it looked more like a camera trick to me (who hasn’t seen snow in years)… like you blurred something else to look like snow.

        Those blossoms look like peonies!! I’ve only seen photos of very simply cherry blossoms. I don’t think I’ve seen any IRL.
